Why Should you Join an ITA-Accredited Shooting Club?

The more you handle and use your firearm, the more competent you become with your firearm. This can only be beneficial when facing a self-defence situation.

Muscle memory is built through repetitive action. If you are carrying a firearm for self-defence, you should be able to draw, aim and fire the firearm competently with little thought given to the movement of this action and more thought given to the safety precautions and place at which the bullet will come to rest.

The SAPS recognises firearm owners who belong to shooting clubs when they apply for firearm licenses.
